After a bout with Covid-19, Aaron Rodgers took the field again today in a game against the Seattle Seahawks. The Packers beat the Seattle Seahawks 17-0 with Rodgers throwing for an impressive 292 yards. The three time NFL MVP was placed on the Covid-19 injury list after he tested positive for Covid earlier this month. Rodgers attempted to get an exemption from the Covid-19 vaccine after saying he was given an alternate treatment and was ultimately denied the exemption by the league, forcing him to quarantine for 10 days before being able to play again. Jordan Love replaced Rodgers in last weeks game against the Kansas City Chiefs, a game the packers ended up losing 7-13.
Aaron Rodgers has come under fire by the liberal media for choosing to remain unvaccinated. The NFl reportedly fined Aaron Rodgers this week for attending a party while unvaccinated. Rodgers recently had an interview with PEOPLE where he expressed his frustration with the backlash. “He knew some people would disagree with him, but he didn’t know that it would become the s—storm it became. People who he thought were friends are turning on him. He’s upset. He’s very unhappy with the response to him.” via PEOPLE. Rodgers says that he has an allergy to the mRNA vaccines that would prevent him from taking it, and believes the Johnson & Johnson vaccine could give him adverse side effects.
The Quarterback has pushed back against the “woke mob” that descended on him after finding out he was unvaccinated. “I believe strongly in bodily autonomy and ability to make choices for your body: Not have to acquiesce to some woke culture or crazed group of individuals who say you have to do something. Health is not a one-size-fits-all for everybody.” he said on the Pat McAfee show. Rodgers
